Thread: tick bite?

  1. #1

    tick bite?

    Attachment 18712. Had a couple of reds in the larder covered in ticks. I could not see any on me but I think I scatched this one off in my sleep. Do you think it is a tick bite or a spot ? Think I will go see the quack in the morning. What do you think? Thanks Mark

    Get to the doc now. I had what I though was a clegg bit that looked like that. Three weeks later was diagnosed with lymes as I felt terrible. Two years later I am now recovered.

    Got bitten weeks ago and went to my doc for a blood test straight away. I was then told to revisit the surgey in 6 to 8 weeks for a second blood test. They then apparently look to see if there is a rise in toxins in the blood. After about 4 weeks i felt like a bag of sh*t so went back to the doc again, where i saw a different doc. Told him my symptoms and he gave me a weeks course of doxycycline, of which i only have one remaining to take tomorrow. Hope when my blood results come back that the delay in medication hasn't given it time to develope. Seems there are different methods of treatment countrywide. Gaz
